- 12 cups cran-raspberry juice
- 4 cups orange juice
- 1 bottle of Merlot
- 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 2 teaspoons whole cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 4 oranges sliced (leave peel on)

Place cloves in a cheesecloth bag or wrap and tie in cheesecloth to prevent your guests from getting pieces of clove in their drink!
Heat all ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved.
Serve warm adding some fruit to each glass.
Note: if it's too hot it may crack your glass.
